. it is a different tlesh hold than what the obama administration has laid out when you look carefully at what the president said at the general assembly, the most recent remarks on iran's nuclear program, he said the united states will not allow iran to have a nuclear bomb. i am paraphrasing to a certain degree. the word capability was not there. you did hear it from the israeli prime minister and today you're hearing it once again from mitt romney. mitt romney has been vague. he has gone back and forth on the issue of capability and sometimes he says it and sometimes he doesn't. today he is very cat goral in saying in a romney administration iran would not be able to have that capability of building a nuclear bomb which is significantly different than the threshold laid out by the president. >> and let's talk about syria which has been somewhat of a thorn in the side of this current sitting american president, and mr. romney, governor romney's view of syria, there was something in these prepared remarks that we excerpted that stood out to me and i want to get your take on it. he said or he w

to talk what they strive to do is paint a contrast betwee them and the obama administration. the contra becom p thr posturg. hoare we going to approh foreign policy differently? the posture is that obama's foreign policy is lead from behind, i think mitt romney is really lean forward. we're trying to use our influence in the middle east to -- but really we're trying to use our influence in the region to get the outcomes we want in order to shape the policies that we want, in order to receive the outcomes that we want in the middle east. >> let's be honest, posturing is what we've got here. was his speech heavy on detail or light on detail? >> i'm stealing this from someone on twitter who said the difference between romney and obama on foreign policy is romney says speak louder but carry the same stick. sort of teddy roosevelt line. what's striking in the speech is overall the differences between romney and obama on foreign policy are not actually that great. it's about how do we deal with the syrian rebels and romney's more forthright but still hedging about whether we're going to arm t
accuse the obama administration of ignoring the growing danger in benghazi. >> to start off by saying you had the correct number and our ambassador and three other individuals are dead and people in the hospital recovering because it only took moments to breach that facility somehow doesn't seem to ring true to the american people. >> reporter: democrats accused republicans of slashing funding for diplomatic security. >> the fact is that since 2011 the house has cut embassy security by hundreds of millions of dollars below the amounts requested by the president. >> reporter: at one point a member of the committee even accused state department officials of showing an aerial photograph of the benghazi compound that he thought should be classified. >> mr. chairman, i'm concerned that we're getting into classified issues that deal with sources and methods that would be totally inappropriate in open forum such as this. >> this information is available, sir, for public dissemination, yes, sir. >> reporter: one of the witnesses continued to insist the state department didn't do enough. >> when i
to cut security by $300 billion be ynd what the obama administration requested. >> the congressman cut embassy security in thinks budget by $300 million below what we asked for. >> what are the facts? the subpoenaing bill proposed did reduce the amount of security by over $300 million. verdict? true. but the democratic led senate did restore some of the funding in the final version signed by the president had bipartisan support for some reduction of funds for embassy security. on the issue of iran, the candidates argued a lot about nuclear weapons security. the ability to make nuclear bombs has quintupled under the obama administration. >> we cannot allow iran to gain luck lar weapons capability. let's take a look where we have come fro. war accident obama, they had enough material to make one bomb. now they have enough for five. >> the fact, the institute for science and national security said when obama took office in 2008, the iranians had enough to make one weapon. now they have five. if they had the capability to enrich uranium, which to the best of our ability, they don't have th
with the obama administration. the vice president was put in charge of the negotiations by president obama and they failed to get the agreement. we don't have a stat tuls of forces agreement because they failed to get one. that's what we were talking about. when it comes to the veterans, we owe them a great debt of gratitude, including your some, bo. >> thank you. >> but we also want to make sure we don't lose the things we fought so hard to get. and we agreed with the 2014 transition in afghanistan. but what we also want to do is make sure we're not projecting weakness abroad. this benghazi issue would be a tragedy in and of itself. but unfortunately, it's indicative of a broader problem, and that is what we're watching is the unraveling of the obama foreign policy, which is making things more chaotic and us let safe. >> i want to talk to you right in the middle of the crisis, governor romney, and you're talking about this again tonight, talked about the weakness, talked about apologies from the obama administration. was that appropriate right in the middle of the crisis in >> on that sam
? >> he was referring to what he called the weak reaction from the obama administration to the uprising, if you will, in iran, a couple of years ago, when there were protests. people were angry and the u.s. was on the sidelines, the president did not directly speak out and the explanation that the administration at the time gave was that the opposition didn't want this to appear to be the opposition to the ayatollahs, standing up in iran, with the backing of united states. that could have been counterproductive. as a result, the obama administration was pretty silent. at the time now where romney is going after him on that, i think there were a few areas where there were some significant differences, but on the whole, after you get through some of the angry rhetoric, there is a lot of agreement between obama and romney, one area of disagreement on arming the syrian rebels. another area of disagreement, how far will iran be able to go in its nuclear weapons capability, the capability of developing a bomb as opposed to actually having a bomb. and the third was on russia. he twice in a spe

what it's telling the obama administration. let's listen. >> as they learn more facts about exa what happened, they changed their assessment. that's why there is also an investigation headed by tom pickering, a leading diplomat from the reagan years, who is doing investigation as to whether or not there are any lapses, what the lapses were, so they will never happen again. >> and they wanted more security there. >> well, we weren't told they wanted more security. we did not know they wanted more security. >> we hear the pronoun he's using, it is we. many of the -- many agree the bo bone of contention is the we were not told the u.s. diplomats needed more security before the fatal attack on september 11th. romney didn't say which state department official that be with. he didn't say specifically which testimony. let's start with that. can you discern what romney was talking about when he said biden contradicted that sworn testimony? >> well, i would say number one that is probably a reference to eric nordstrom, who was the regional security officer, that means he works for the state

swirling after the debate. and it concerns the obama administration's handling of the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. paul ryan was quick to pounce on that in the debate. vice president biden didn't provide very clear responses. let's turn to our foreign affairs correspondent jill dougherty who's taking a much closer look. what are you seeing jill? >> reporter: wolf, you know, it was the very first right off the bat the very first question at that debate what exactly happened in benghazi? there are three investigations underway. at this point there is a lot that is still unclear. so here's our fact check on a few key issues. it's one of the most serious charges congressman paul ryan leveled at vice president joe biden. >> there were requests for extra security. those requests were not honored. >> reporter: extra security for u.s. diplomats in libya. but biden claims the white house didn't knowe weren't told they wanted more security. we did not know they wanted more security again. >> reporter: but the former regional security officer in libya told a congr

's wrong with the entire obama administration, they have a lack of ambition for this country and what it can and should do. but i would also say if he believes that, that tim geithner believes that a public sector job is equivalent to a private sector job. it's not that public sector jobs aren't important. teachers are important, firemen are important, nurses are important. but a public sector job doesn't pay for itself. taxpayers pay for it. a public sector job doesn't create other jobs. a private sector job pays for itself and creates other jobs. i frankly found his statement shocking. both because of its lack of ambition and because of its misunderstanding of what actually drives growth. it's not public sector jobs. >> let me ask you this, under reagan's recovery, were we laying off teachers and firefighters? were state governments laying off teachers and firefighters at this rate? >> no. absolutely not. >> well, that's part of the recovery. our unemployment is where we are right now if republican governors weren't slashing teach eshs and slashing first responders. >> that's a circ
that point in the press release. they did the math, okay? and here's the math that the obama administration has done. they found a way to make up $4 trillion of their $5 trillion number, and they conclude, there's a missing $1 trillion. not $5 trillion. $1 trillion. all right. so they've got the math all laid out here. i'm looking at the e-mail myself. if we take those numbers at f e facel value, it still doesn't match their rhetoric on the campaign trail this week. in fact, here's the president and his campaign's press secretary, both today. >> the centerpiece of governor romney's economic plan is a new $5 trillion tax cut that favors the wealthiest americans. >> the fact is that mitt romney's got $5 trillion tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires that he would make seniors and the middle class pay for. >> well, the voice you just heard there, ben le bolt.

-muslim video in other parts of the world. various officials in the obama administration initially said a protest outside the consulate had turned violent. tonight, though, on the eve of a congressional hearing about the security situation in benghazi, prior to the attack, a new narrative is emerging from the state department. jill dougherty joins me now. so jill, there is a question about whether there were protests outside the consulate. the state department is now saying tonight there was nothing out of the ordinary, that all was quiet before the attack took place. there was no protest. that contradicts what we've heard from other corners of the administration, even days after the attack. how can that be? >> well, anderson, you know, they did not specifically say there were no protests. i just checked what one of those officials said, and he said you would have to ask others about that, but that is not our conclusion. and then this official also said i'm not saying we even have a conclusion. so that's still very, very unclear. but what this official does say tonight, anderson, is tha

. the obama administration implemented a managed bankruptcy of the automakers. >> they both had the same concept. mitt romney and president obama had the same concept of a managed bankruptcy. >> different concepts. mitt romney didn't want a bunch of government money and taxpayer money going in and guaranteeing these automaker, but when you hear the words let it go bankrupt he wanted it outf business. he said he did not want them and he did not want the taxpayer involved the way they were. we decided this is misleading, the statement. the op ed was titled let detroit go bankrupt by "the new york times," romney wanted a managed bankruptcy overall and ultimately there was a managed bankruptcy. look, there are different views on how to fix the auto industry, but mitt romney did want to fix the auto industry. >> both of the sides had views about a managed bankruptcy, but don't believe the had headline that was attributed to mitt romney. >> it ultimately worked, by the way. >> you can make a fair argument, without question. >> get some sleep tonight. for those of you who missed it and you did
the obama administration over their approach to syria. he was clear he would be sure that syrian rebels got the weapons they need, the heavy weaponry they so desperately need to take on the gun ships an tanks causing civilian casualties. he portrayed the struggle as more about checking iran's influence in that region, but he also pointed out one of the major contradictions the white house is currently facing, the violence extremists are flowing in, but the need to vet the kind of assistance it would go to. >> most libyans have not been following the presidential campaign. the attention has been on the country's own political situation. on sunday, the national assembly voted out the prime minister it had selected less than a month ago go. libya is now facing a political vacuum at a time of serious threats an instability. but one line from mitt romney's speech that would stand out to libyans, he said he would vigorously pursue those responsible for the september 11th attackn the u.s. consulate in benghazi. libyan officials here have praised the obama's administration response to the attack an
the violent protests over the antiislam video which the obama administration had claimed for some of the deaths of those four u.s. officials never even took place in benghazi. state department official told reporters during a conference call this. there had been nothing unusual during the day. there was nobody on the street. then at 9:40 they saw the security cameras -- they saw on the security cameras there were armed men invading the compound. joining us this morning from capitol is republican congressman jason chaffetz, chairman of the house oversight committee, recently returned from a fact finding trip to libya ahead of today's hearings. thank you for talking with us. what do you think of this new information coming to us from the state department call? >> it's troubling. i'm glad it's happening. i think it's a result of the fact that we are holding this hearing, that this state department and the white house are slowly coughing up the information that we deserve to have to make sure that it never ever happens again. >> what do you want out of this hearing? do you want to see
with a bailout check. and the obama administration ultimately had a managed bankruptcy of the automakers so the romney op-ed titled "let detroit go bankrupt," that was a "new york times" headline. romney wanted a managed bankruptcy, but -- but, john, you say he has actually said these words. >> the obama campaign sent me a video over night of him saying it in 2011, well after the bailout happened. he actually spoke the words let detroit go bankrupt, actually quoting the headline from that. so they are trying to say the words came out of his mouth, albeit not before the bailout or not when he's advocating for it. >> the difference here is mitt romney did not want a direct injection of taxpayer funds into the companies as they were, right? >> that's exactly correct. >> in the end you didn't get a direct injection of taxpayer funds into the company, right, because the white house and the car czar was remaking these things through the bankruptcy. >> there was a bailout and managed bankrupts net end. >> so the final verdict. >> the final verdict on this one is that it is false, that it is false
call with president obama, his first words were you're welcome. how is the administration dealing with this? do they see it the same way? >> reporter: he went into this happy to be able to defend the honor of the white house and this administration and will probably come out of it feeling he did that. and the administration and the campaign were thrild with the performance last night for the very reasons ron outlined. especially because biden forcefully made the case that the democratic base wanted to hear about the president's economic message. essentially, you know, many democrats were so disappointed after the president's performance last week. somebody needed to come out and reenergize them. and so that's what the vice president was aabble to do. now it's up to the president to see if he can pick it up from there next week, don. >> don, real quick, still the hole in the donut, like obama last week, as strong as biden was, almost nothing about what a second term, second obama term would bring, particularly on the economy. big missing piece. tough on the republican choice, tough

think the vice president will be pretty direct in his comments about what the obama administration's plans are. he's going to have a tough time debating the record. we saw that last week with governor romney and president obama. when it actually got to the record they struggled a little bit. vice president is a confident debater. we look at debates historically, the older, more senior person often has the upper hand. not always but often. >> you're looking at a decent age gap between the two men. do you think age plays a factor in this? >> i think so. now it's a situation, is it going to be more reanesque or more john kennedy? if the younger guy is able to carry his own. i know paul ryan really well. he's a good friend of mine. this guy is smart and is experienced and he understands the numbers. >> congressman? >> he will do okay but will have his hands full. >> one of the things he's known for is specifics. and figures and data. one of the things that mitt romney hasn't been doing lately is filling in the data and giving specifics on his tax plan and budget plan. what kind of chal
in our nato partners and talk about the positive ways the obama administration handled libya and that biden should point out that paul ryan's most recent budget in the house called for reductions in spending to the state department and he said that could jeopardize u.s. security and that biden should point that out. >> we know that half of the debate is supposed to be on foreign policy, national security. the other half on domestic issues. right now they're introducing the wives of the candidates. soledad, tell our viewers what you're seeing. >> that's right. the commissioner has been really running through the program as they head up through the start of the debate. interesting difference between the two wives. very different women, of course. >> very different, primarily because we do see jill biden a lot out there with michelle obama, talking about military families. jan ryan has not done any interviews. believe me, we tried. and she wants to maintain a low profile. she's raising her three kids. she simply has the pedigree to be able to get out there and talk about politic
